This state park has a beautiful beach, that allows views east to Panama City, and west to Destin. There is also a nice relatively short (45 minutes) nature trail behind the dunes which separate the beach from the inland freshwater lake

We stopped over here on recommendation of my cousin who lives in Pensacola.It was spectacular white sand. We actually were able to snorkel till we were worn out.We took crackers and fed all kinds of fish as they would circle around.That whole Grayton Beach area is well worth at least stopping by . Better yet stay a day or so.

I returned to this park after visiting last year. The beach of course is lovely and I really like the nature trail and its interpretive panels. Even in winter the bathrooms are open, clean, and well-maintained.

Beautiful sandy beaches nearby (a 10 minute walk down a quiet road in the state park). Campsite was well set up, with private sites and walkways from the back of each site to the bathroom which was clean and had hot showers. All the campsites were really private, you can't go wrong.

Smaller campground with adequate rv space and privacy. Easy bike ride to a pristine private beach. Very clean shower rooms. Close bike ride to shops and restaurants. Easy drive to Destin and other area favorites. Will return!

This is one of the most beautiful state parks we have visited. I read about Grayton Beach in a magazine and felt we just had to go to the park there. We are so glad we did and wished we had more time to walk the beach, etc. Definitely, another trip to this tranquil place.

We arrived on Friday and the staff was really friendly. We were camping for 2 nights and had a nice little spot #4. It looked small but right on the opposite side of the campsite was a little walk way that went down to a little secluded bacci court and fire pit area (at least that's what we used it... More

We went a couple of times - well worth the couple of $ you pay, since this includes restroom facilities, which were nice and clean! The beach itself is fabulous, the water crystal clear - and the high-rises of Destin - luckily - very far away - you can walk for miles without seeing anybody, since most people just stay... More

We rented bikes from the nearby town of Seaside and rode our bikes out to the beach. Bummer they made you pay to get in - but it is a State Park, $2 each bike. The beach was quiet and deserted, and there were picnic tables to have lunch and even a boat/canoe launch.
